DC Plan Summit: DC plans coming of age

Defined contribution pension plans in Canada are maturing quickly and becoming more sophisticated. Contributions and plan assets continue to grow, investment options are evolving and many employers are now operating in multigenerational workforces with a wave of employees who are nearing retirement.

How plan sponsors can respond to the evolving landscape was a key focus of Benefits Canada’s Defined Contribution Plan Summit in Vancouver in February. With case studies, panel discussions and interactive workshops, the conference explored the shifting environment and possible solutions to the challenges plan sponsors are facing.
